    Yeh I know lol that's y my gf is always like y r u so secrative wen your not doing anything illegal. Id rather fly through the trees then above them. I deal with the growing weed thing everytime I go to the local farm and garden to buy supplies. The people in there always assume I'm growing weed and everytime I describe to them what I'm doing they get a look on their face like they don't belive me.... I don't really care to be honest with them. In my eyes I grow better things then weed. On another note as for police anyone else notice that our taxes are increasing and their salaries are increasing but they still treat us all like criminals. The whole judical system has completly flipped now its guilty until proven innocent. Like I said b4 fly through the trees not above them.

    So, if you want to grow illegal plants (I do not) then one should grow some plants under lights call cops (neighbors) to let them know you're growing said plants then you should be good to go for the illegal stuff. For some reason that's all I could think about while reading this thread.

    Errr, I don't think the point was to get the cops off your back, I think the point was to convince them it's unnecessary to kick your door down and shoot your dog. I'd say it's going to take a little more than a few D. capensis and D. muscipula to convince any cop that your only intention is growing CPs. So you'd have to actually be growing a good number of plants in some kind of tent or greenhouse to even convince them you're not a "threat," I'd imagine. Even then, who's to say they wouldn't surprise visit you a few months later? Again, I don't think the point is to be permanently on their whitelist, but to protect your dog's and even you and/or your family's safety and lives (if you were to react to people busting into your house in the middle of the night by defending yourself, thus getting shot).

    I'd have to agree that while being concerned is perfectly understandable, it isn't worth giving up your hobby or losing sleep over. The suggestion to speak to the police department and voice your concern -- even inviting them to come over and take a look if they want -- is a sound one. Speaking to your neighbors is also a good idea.

    I often joke with my family and friends that I'm expecting the cops to stop by my apt some day and inquire about the bright light shining through the drapes in my spare room 7 days a week.

    Same thing happens to me in my apartment complex. Luckily, my next door neighbor things the plants are the coolest things he's ever seen.
